Molière

four stars out of five Molière’s passionate affair with and love for his patron’s wife is told in flashback as he makes his way towards being one of France’s most celebrated playwrights.

No idea about the historical accuracy of the story (probably no more so than, say, Shakespeare in Love, which might be its nearest English-language equivalent in subject matter), but it’s a gorgeously filmed costume piece. Funny and surprisingly touching in places.
